A : 108g
B : 162g
Try to work backwards, I will give you the first sentence example,
1/5 of sand in Box C is poured into Box A. So you must find Box C initial weight before pouring into Box A. And you know that Box A, B, C is equal weight which is 120g.
Box C weight before pouring into box A x 4/5 = 120g
Box C weight before pouring into box A = 120 x 5/4 = 150g
After which you have to minus 30 g from box A.
After you solve Box A and C, you can continue to the next 2 sentences. using the method I gave on top.
Hope it help!!
